Why Create A Homestead
Homesteading in Florida has multiple advantages. Homestead law, in general, allows you to exempt a certain amount of your real estate value from creditors. This means that it will not go through probate, and – in most cases – a creditor cannot force you to sell it.
There are some restrictions on the amount of property you can declare as a homestead. You are limited to:
- One-half acre of urban land
- 160 acres of rural land
However, aside from those restrictions, you do not have an upper value for your homestead. A Florida homestead is a massively valuable wealth protection tool.
To turn your property into a homestead, you must file the appropriate paperwork and meet some requirements. Chief among them is your Florida residency.
